Above is a picture of the hammock my husband made. Not only did he make the frame, he MADE the hammock. I had mentioned that I wanted one for my birthday, but he decided I shouldn't have to wait that long, and by then there wouldn't be as much hammock time left. Now I have a whole summer of hammock time!! This was a complete surprise to me, he had been working on something, but I didn't expect this! He probably doesn't know it, but he's continuing a tradition of surprising me with the gift of a hammock which my papa started back when I had my first big garden. :)
So, the grades have not yet been tallied, and the diploma is not yet in the mail, but I am in fact done with my undergraduate work! I am enrolled in the MSU master of music program majoring in theory, slated to begin in the fall. I never heard back from North Texas about my application there, and we had a lot of things to plan one way or the other... so we are going to stay at least another year.
It has been a strange feeling to look back and see all that has changed since I started. I am blown away by the way life works sometimes.
So many people in my life have been there for me over the years, encouraging me and telling me I can do this, even though I'm an "older" student, and haven't cared about getting a degree in my life. I am so grateful to have such supportive a loving people in my life!
